My pleasure. A really, REALLY great book on silent film - easy to read for something so definitive - is Kevin Brownlow's "The Parades Gone by . . .". Brownlow is probably the single most important figure in why we even have these films to see. He triggered in interest in the field and is "Mr.Restoration." A BBC fixture, he also does work for Turner Movie Classics. Golly, it must be fun to be smart like that.

So true; but then again we have like yourself and others who understand there are more to films \an just sitting on your duff and watching the finished product: without knowing the time, sweat, labor, and hard work that goes into making those images on the screen that flicker by so fast the human cannot comprehend the still images and accepts them as moving pictures. Thank you for research and understanding.
